Sumary of Italy town puts price of cheap homes up to €2:
- Two years on from the 2019 scheme, local authorities still get requests from foreigners interested in buying one of the town’s bargain homes, and have decided now is right the time to sell off roughly 20 more abandoned buildings, many of which are adjacent houses, giving buyers an opportunity to buy more than one property and knock them through.
- The homes for sale include a selection of single, one-level homes measuring between 50 and 80 square-meters featuring small Moorish interior courtyards with lemon trees.
- Meanwhile, larger 120-square-meter multi-story reddish-pink stone buildings with balconies and terraces overlooking green fields dotted with grazing sheep are also up for sale.
- Fixer uppers Around 20 more abandoned buildings located in the “Saracen” neighborhood are up for sale.
- “Plus they’re cheaper, about €500.” Some of the homes on offer are in an incredibly good shape, with old painted majolica tile floors designed by Sicilian art masters and golden brown colored walls dating back to the 1920’s, and look set to be the most coveted of the bunch.
- “But those who buy one now are clever and know exactly what they’re signing up for and all the plus points.” “They’ll find a revitalized town full of energy and life, where many buildings have been given a makeover and where their neighbors down the street speak English and French.
